General overview of activities in 2016:
The In-Mind foundation showed a healthy overall financial performance and continued to grow in the scope, usage, quality, and national as well as international visibility of its content. More than 90% of the activities in 2016 were spent on creating original content to communicate science to the general public. These activities consisted of publishing original content in the form of peer-reviewed articles (46), unreviewed blog posts (36), unreviewed book reviews (7), and videos. Less than 10% of our activities were focused on training scientists (through a writing workshop).
Original content was also created through our In-Mind videos, which are intended to communicate psychological concepts to a larger audience. These are also original content, and produced by our own team (in collaboration with renowned scientists). Two of these new In-Mind videos were released in 2016, with David Schroeder on 'Helping' and Susan Fiske on 'Stereotypes', supporting In-Mind's commitment to make the work of leading researchers accessible to our readers. The videos were well received with over 5,000 views so far. We also made the videos available (for free) to a leading psychology textbook publisher, who will include our videos section in their pack of resources for teachers. We hope these videos will increasingly serve as an engaging teaching resource.
Beyond In-Mind Videos, we also started to videotape short scientific presentations (again creating original content). Currently, we are editing the raw material and will then upload them on YouTube and on our own homepage.
The In-Mind Foundation received the Service Award for Service to the Field of Social/Personality Psychology from the Society for Personality and Social Psychology (SPSP). This award, established in 2002, is for distinguished efforts by individuals to benefit the field of social and personality psychology. We received the award at the annual Awards Ceremony held at the SPSP Annual Convention.
